FinTech Symposium Overview
The FinTech (Financial Technology) segment is growing exponentially, presenting lots of business and career opportunities. The Fintech ecosystem is also changing rapidly, with digital technology, innovations, regulations, market structures, and convergence with other sectors. Over the past decade emerging technologies, paired with massive changes in regulations, have driven an unprecedented transformation of finance around the world. This process is happening more rapidly in Africa and Asia than anywhere else.
New players such as start-ups and technology firms are challenging traditional players in finance, bringing democratization, inclusion, and disruption. Companies engaged in social media, e-commerce, and telecommunications, as well as companies and start-ups with large customer data pools, creative energies, and technical capacities, have brought competition to the existing financial infrastructure and are remaking the industry.
These transformations have not only created challenges but also unprecedented opportunities, building synergies with new business and regulatory models, particularly in emerging markets and developing countries. This symposium is designed to explore FinTech fundamentals and help make sense of this wave of change in emerging economies (India & Nigeria) as it happens.
Core focus areas that will be discussed in the event include:
